    Review of Golden Eagle Syrup Factory in Fayette, AL:

    Our family of 5 went on this tour. We did call in advance to get the okay because tour information is not posted on the site. However, the people were exceptionally helpful and eager to provide information regarding the history and the production of Golden Eagle Syrup. At that time, (and I'm pretty sure it still holds true) it is the only place that produces the syrup, although it is shipped for retail to many states. It is located in the heart of Fayette. We were surprised that the facility was so small, but they are very efficient! They allowed the children to "help" in certain areas that were safe and they got a big kick out of that! They also gave us free samples of the syrup and allowed us to purchase directly from the factory. There are some great Golden Eagle recipes on their site at http://www.goldeneaglesyrup.com.
    Blessings,
    Rhonda
